Wow...constantly in awe of Mother Nature and her creations ❤️ Spotted eagle rays at Rasdhoo Madivaru, Rasdu Atoll in the Maldives. Large groups of spotted eagle rays are often seen outside of breeding season. They swim close to the surface and can occasionally be seen jumping clear out of the water. This very distinctive ray has a rounded and pointed snout - which almost resembles a bird’s beak? The heavy dental plates are used to crush their hard-shelled prey (such as bivalve shellfish). They also have a long, ship-like tail which bears 2-6 spines.

Photo: Ryan Daly @pontasharkdiaries A Blue spotted puffer: With its cosmopolitan distribution from Réunion to Indonesia, reserchers were not surprised to encounter the bluespotted puffer off D'Arros Island. The fish has characteristic alternating light and dark rings around its eyes. The blue spotted puffer was one of the 500+ fish species SOSF researchers recorded during a rapid biodiversity assessment around D’Arros Island and St Joseph Atoll. The recently published paper shed light on the high species diversity found in this area of the Seychelles, highlighting the potential for a new marine reserve. #research #marinebiology #science #marineconservation #MPA #underwaterphotography #UWphotography #diving #scuba #scubadiving #snorkelling #reeffish #reefs #ocean #saveourseas #saveourseasfoundation #fish #sea #nature #wildlife #biodiversity #seychelles #island

This photo was taken exactly two years while I received an opportunity of my life along with my friend @justingilligan , the Marine Conservation Photography Grant from @saveourseasfoundation to work on a magical place, the islands of Bimini in the Bahamas with the @biminisharklab Since my BSc year, I have always wanted to visit this place to participate in their shark research, but well.. I couldnt really afford it, and didn’t imagine would really get to be there one day. Nothing much, just thinking of the good old days out there in the field and appreciate the opportunity I received from all the good people I met along the way. . .

Even though most fishing hooks and lures are biodegradable, the plastic fishing line that is attached to them isn't and it will take on average 600 years to decompose in todays oceans. Even after these fishing lines do eventually disintegrate, it will then form microplastics which make there way up the food chain until they wind up in our food fish and large predators such as sharks and whales. As Divers or simply ocean lovers it is our duty to pick up any plastic that we may see littering our shores, for each piece of plastic you pick up is a life spared in our oceans. Buy biodegradable fishing line to help change this destructive form of pollution. Buy the fishing line from Eagle claw/Brad Wiegmann: www.bradwiegmann.com Or for a more stylish approach to plastic pollution check out @7seasrope as these guys make bracelets out of discarded plastic to spread awareness. #7seasrope #plasticpollution #pickitup #binit #dontdropit #biodegradable #careforouroceans #plasticisthekiller #plasticseas #plasticfish #ghostnets #ghostline #ghostfishing #saveourseasfoundation #saveourseas

Photo: Claire Metcalf @claire_was_there - facilities manager of our Shark Education Centre in South Africa This beautiful carpet flatworm was spotted as it rippled its way over the submerged rocks in the Dalebrook Sanctuary zone, perhaps hunting for the small crustaceans that it feeds on. The tentacle-like fleshy growths that cover the top of its body are used both for camouflage and to increase the body surface area for oxygen absorption. Although they are apparently common in the intertidal zone, this striking creature was a first for us here at the Shark Education Centre and we were very excited to have seen it! #education #marinelife #marinebiology #marineconservation #nature #wildlife #underwaterphotography #oceans #saveourseasfoundation #saveourseas #rockpools #awareness #conservation #snorkel #diving #sealife

The world of plastic, Tuba 2017 This is my first sculpture with using plastic from the pacific garbage patch I gather from the Oregon coast (see 2nd picture). 3rd picture is a good example showing why we should bring public awareness for over consumption of plastic. And I do that by making art. I don’t not exhibit them yet. But soon I will. I had stopped making it for a reason, but started again. My next project will be bigger and hoping to exhibit it in Cannon Beach.

Track & trace blue shark Azores Blue shark: This is the most fished shark of all shark species. They are used for their fins, shark skin, tails, and flesh. Sometimes their teeth and jaws are taken for commercial uses as well. There has been much concern recently about over fishing from both commercial fisheries as well as game fisheries. Approximately 10 to 20 million of these sharks are killed due to human capture every year. This species has no other natural enemies besides Humans. This species is non aggressive towards humans. The only known attacks are the result of the shark feeling threatened or biting after a human capture of the shark. @picosportazores@saveoursharksnl@sharksdaily @sharkaholic @sharkservation #DUIKEN #DIVE #DIVER #scuba #tauchen #sharksdaily #blueshark #UWPHOTO #SCUBA #PROTECTTHEMARINELIFE #sharklove #picosportazores #saveourseasfoundation #UNDERWATERLIFE #sharkdiving #picoisland #StopSharkFinning #sharkconservation #ilovesharks #azores

A rare sighting of our Shark Education Centre’s shy, resident Nosestripe klipfish. 
The Nosestripe klipfish, rests amongst some mussel shells in the Shark Education Centre's touch pool tank. These little fish from the Clinidae family are endemic to the southern African coastline, and are mostly found in tidal pools. Partly sheltering it is another common tide pool resident, the cape sea urchin.

Earth day isn't just about admiring the planet's beauty, it serves as a reminder to protect the beauty we admire. EVERY YEAR, EIGHT MILLION TONS of plastic are dumped into our oceans. Thus killing and poisoning sea creatures, destroying ecosystems, and endangering communities that depend on the ocean as their primary source of food. So keep it clean by intentionally choosing reusable grocery bags, reusable water bottles, and by getting creative on how to replace single-use plastic with reusable products (after all, it saves you money). We really can make a difference one bag or bottle at a time! 👊🏻 // Tagged are some great resources for gaining more info on how we can change our habits to make a difference. Also, I am a good resource 🤓 ( #nerdalert ) and would LOVE to talk more about stewarding the earth. //

A #kayaker enjoys a leisurely paddle through a tranquil #mangrove lined channel in #andros island in the #bahamas . In addition to enjoying this #wild and beautiful location, he is actually helping conduct some research. This expedition to this remote area of the Bahamas was to search for the elusive and highly endangered smalltooth sawfish. The #kayak is a much more stealthy way to explore an area than a power boat. The engines in a boat can spook a sawfish. This kayak and a paddle board were used to survey the shallow flats areas surrounding the deeper channels. The kayak was also used to spread out baited lines. While catching and tagging a sawfish was the goal, I couldn’t help but take this shot to show how amazing it is to explore this area.

Here's a pic of an African Penguin. A small bird with a tonne of attitude, and you have to say that they're adorable. These birds are listed as Endangered on the IUCN red list and at one point South Africa was losing around 50 birds a week. But thankfully with recent efforts this birds decrease has slowed down, these birds can be found along the South African Coastline and colonies in places such as Betty's Bay, Boulders Beach and Dyer Island. We saw these guys whilst on a day trip with @volunteerwhiteshark @whitesharkco #bettysbaypenguincolony #bettysbaypenguins #bettysbay #SouthAfrica #smallwithattitude #africanpenguin #jackasspenguin #soconfident #saveourseas #saveourseasfoundation #IUCNredist #IUCN
